This hotel is older and could use a touch up here and there. The bathroom was tiny but clean and everything worked. The pool area was small for a hotel this size but nice. The WIFI worked but sometimes it was slow. But I don’t care about all that . I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It has...

Aloha, Thank you for letting us know about the experience you had recently at our hotel.

I had a nice stay at the King Kam. The room as others have mentioned was clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and peaceful. As others have mentioned, the rooms will be updated soon. This did not take away from my experience on the island. I came here to explore the island rather than camping at the hotel. The...

Thank you so much for your simple, yet straight forward evaluation of your experience on our island.

Hotel was OK. Breakfast every morning is just for 1 person. It's priced high enough that there's no value in the breakfast package. True Ocean Front room do not exist. All Ocean Front rooms look out over sprawling roof tops. The East tower is more of a parking lot view with Ocean to the left. The Laguna is OK, but...

Having read glowing reviews, we were eagerly anticipating our stay. It wasn't bad, but rather disappointing. Although we booked well in advance and are Marriott Rewards members, when we arrived at our room, which was just one floor up from the lobby, we found we had a view of a concrete roof. Ugh - so we didn't use our balcony...

I had a hard time deciding on how to rate this facility. I would probably gone with a 3.5 overall but felt 3 was too low as there is much to recommend this hotel. We spent a week staying here in an ocean front room. The room was clean and of good size and did face water but the view...

Looks like an old Marriott that was downgraded to a Courtyard. Nice friendly service. Spent 3 days on Hawaii touring so it was a good base for that. HVAC needs replacement as we ran the AC consistently and could never get the musty damp smell out of the room.

My overall impression was very good. I recommend a room with ocean view. The hotel is on one end of Ali'i Drive, where all the restaurants and shops are and a step of the port, where the 'Atlantis Submarine Tour' and other boat-events start.

We often stay at King Kams due to its central location. We were disappointed to see that people checking in around us were offered free gifts and upgrades when we got nothing as we paid for the top of the line anyway... doesn't seem fair. Maybe next time we will book a cheap room and get the free upgrade. Parking...

Perfect location right on Alli Drive. Great restaurants and shops all within walking distance. Wonderful beach and pool area all the amenities. We've stayed here a couple of times and have always been pleased with the room. Great little outdoor bar for a quick snack and cocktail. There's also a nice convenience store on the property with everything imaginable.
